How will Calvert spend your tax money?

**Tues 3/20/18 7pm at Calvert Pines Senior Cntr, 450 West Dares Beach Rd in PF.**

Where will the Commissioners spend your tax dollars?  What is being spend on school safety, traffic studies and road improvements?  How much will building a new County office building at Armory Square cost us? Even if you don’t know a thing about budgets, come listen to your fellow citizens. Our County Commissioners will be in the audience and need to hear what you have to say!
